Re: Your Time to Fly
First, thank you to everyone who is commenting and voting. Thanks for your time and your interest, very much!
When I designed this, my concept was to make a more powerful take on the typical shirts with wings on the back (hence the wings as the design's centerpiece) and jetpack came to mind. I was either completely finished or verysuperclose when the existence of other jetpacks was brought to my attention, and of course that was disappointing.
I used the jetpack from The Rocketeer and another concept someone had physically built as references, so I do understand that the mechanics of the design would be similar to others' because they were also likely inspired by actual jetpacks. Artistically, I really don't think it came out too similarly to the others I've been shown. I'd honestly not seen them before, no inspiration came from them.
I just wanted to state that my mind was certainly far from the possibility of upsetting anyone as I was drawing, and I do promise I created this with originality.
Thanks again, all.
